KSL Diagnostics to Open COVID-19 Pop-Up Testing & Vaccination Site at Walden Galleria
— Public COVID-19 testing & vaccination site opens at area’s largest shopping center, for both local residents and international visitors —
Buffalo, NY: In collaboration with Walden Galleria, KSL Diagnostics Inc. is opening a Pop-Up COVID-19 testing and vaccination site, inside the area’s largest shopping center. The first testing site in the mall open to the public, KSL will occupy a 4,100 square-foot space on the upper level just outside of Macy’s. A ribbon cutting ceremony is expected to take place on Thursday, November 18th at 10:00 a.m. to commemorate the official opening of the new Pop-Up location.
The entire menu of KSL Diagnostics COVID-19 virus tests will be offered including the travel RT-PCR test with 30-minute or 24-hour turnaround result time options, as well as the rapid antigen test. In collaboration with Erie County Department of Health, KSL will also be offering vaccinations, both initial doses and boosters, to eligible visitors at the Walden Galleria location at no cost. KSL will handle insurance billing for patients if a test is medically necessary with a prescription or for uninsured patients.
“With the holiday season approaching and COVID-19 still prevalent, we want to help local residents and welcome Canadian visitors with a convenient way to travel safely and navigate the demands during this time of year,” said Kevin Lawson, President and CEO of KSL Diagnostics. “A Pop-Up testing site at Walden Galleria Mall, also offering vaccinations, is a great way for us to continue providing the community with accessible, fast test results and protection that helps bring less stress for the holidays.”
